DUBAI | Jewel of the Creek (mixed use development) | U/C

Dubai has hundreds of threads across SSC dedicated to its skyscrapers, but just one or two that are dedicated to low rise urban developments in the heart of the city.

Jewel of the Creek has been under development since 2006 at a prime site in the heart of old Dubai and work slowed during the downturn, however things have slowly picked up steam again and work is moving forward at a fairly rapid pace.

Below are some renders - there have been many over the past 6 years!

I will post the latest news on the project as and when it becomes available. In the mean time, enjoy the updates and feel free to share your thoughts on the development

I noticed alot of soil testing taking place on this site over the past few weeks, so this is probably the resulting project.

We need to get a master plan!

The area right above the "D" in the picture below is where the site activity is concentrated - infact, it's even cordoned off in the pic....

The local/Australian Al-Habtoor Leighton Group has won the estimated AED400m ($109m) substructure contract on the Jewel of the Creek development in Dubai.

The client, the local Dubai International Real Estate, selected Al-Habtoor Leighton after it received bids from contractors for the package in November 2010.

The works involve the construction of a four-level basement for the development, which is located on the banks of the creek in the Port Saeed area next to Al-Maktoum bridge. Another contract will be awarded for the building works. The scheme is a mixed-use development, with 17 main buildings surrounding …

HLG has been awarded the AED480m ($130m) Package 7 of the Jewel of the Creek development in Port Saeed, Dubai, a statement said.

HLG's contract involves the construction and completion of the substructure works for four basement levels and ground floor slabs on the waterside site between Al Maktoum Bridge, Baniyas Road and the Floating Bridge, the statement added.

Package 7 forms part of the AED3 billion "Jewel of the Creek" development which will be a multi-use development including four and five star hotels, furnished serviced apartments, a convention centre, a ballroom, office buildings, residential buildings, a marina and landscaping.

HLG chairman Riad T Sadik welcomed the new project to HLG's project portfolio, saying: "We are confident that this landmark development will be a great success."

Laurie Voyer, HLG CEO and managing director, added: "The award of the project demonstrates that HLG has an established reputation and is a preferred contractor by major clients in the Dubai market."

Construction works on Package 7 have already begun and completion is expected in August 2013, he added.

HLG, a joint venture between the Al Habtoor Group and Australia’s Leighton Holdings, last week said it had won a $515m deal to build a luxury hotel in Dubai.

The deal is part of the Al Habtoor Group’s $1.3bn overhaul of the Metropolitan Hotel.

HLG will construct a hotel complex, comprising a five-level podium, one 26-storey tower and one 25-storey tower.

Yes, it does. The area used to be where oil rigs were manufactured decades ago, so this project will help revive the waterfront area

A superb update from VCollaborator!

Looks like it may be amongst the city's biggest construction projects at the moment!

The project construction site can be seen on the banks of Dubai Creek in the bottom half of the picture.....

The local Dubai International Real Estate is preparing to issue tender documents for the next phase of its Jewel of the Creek development in Dubai.

The contract will involve building the superstructure of the mixed-use development that will have 17 main buildings surrounding a marina. The buildings include:

A convention centre with ballroom and recreation centre
A 17-storey luxury hotel
A 17-storey four-star hotel and serviced apartment building
Eight 19-storey apartment buildings
Three 17-storey office towers
Four 19-storey serviced apartment buildings

The local/Australian Al-Habtoor Leighton Group won the estimated AED400m ($109m) substructure contract in July last year. That contract involves the construction of a four-level basement for the development, which is located on the banks of the creek in the Port Saeed area next to Al-Maktoum bridge.

The piling works were completed by the local APCC. Germany’s Kling Consult is the consultant for the architectural design, structural engineering, landscape design and quantity surveying
